“Biomedical Engineering” covers any application of engineering techniques and principles to problems and processes of biology or medicine. Such a broad class of study needs to be narrowed in order to achieve adequate depth, and the emphasis chosen by our faculty is—first and foremost—to provide students with the opportunity to acquire a rigorous engineering education. This basis then serves as a springboard to concentrated study of biomaterials, bioelectronics, bioelectricity, biomechanics and tissue engineering during the remaining undergraduate years, and will prepare you for graduate school, medical school, or a position in industry.

Each of our faculty members are committed to helping you acquire the very best education. Consequently, you will have to work very hard, but I think that you will find your time here both exciting and rewarding.

While we’ve tried to answer most of your questions about study in biomedical engineering, it cannot convey the enthusiasm that all of us on the biomedical engineering faculty feel for the work we are doing, and specific questions may not have been answered. Please feel free to write, e-mail or call us. Sometimes a personal visit is the most effective way for you to decide whether you wish to join us. We will be happy to show you our facilities, introduce you to the faculty, and discuss the field of biomedical engineering with you if you make an appointment to visit us here in New Orleans.
